    EVI recommendations?

    Hi, I'm thinking about purchasing an EVI, and wondered which are best for trumpet players. I'm guessing that would be the Morrison Digital Trumpet, which sadly is no longer in production.

    Would the next best choice be the Steiner EVI? (also in limited production it seems)

    What about the AKAI EWI4000 and 5000? That would be my last choice since it looks more woodwindish, but maybe I could get over that.

    Can anyone comment on the AKAI brand, or any others? Do you like it, or would you rather have the more trumpet-like MDT?

    I have a 5000 I would consider selling... it's a fantastic instrument and having owned some of the others (I have had a MDT and the old Bug Sprayer Akai Evi) the 5000 would be a great option for you.

    Thanks, Trent. I will definitely consider the 5000 and will PM you for details if I decide to go that route. Seems it would be the least expensive way to start out, relative to the MDT at least.

    Out of curiosity, was there was there something about the MDT that you didn't like, or that made you prefer another EVI?
